INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

STRIPES:
The piece is worked in stripes. Cut the strand each time you change colors. Fasten all strands at the end. Work 1 row of each color.
STRIPE 1: Work with mustard.
STRIPE 2: Work with off white.
STRIPE 3: Work with ice blue.
STRIPE 4: Work with off white.
STRIPE 5: Work with coral.
STRIPE 6: Work with navy.
STRIPE 7: Work with off white.
Repeat rows 1 to 7 to finished length. NOTE! Last row and all of the loop is worked in coral.

CROCHET INFO:
Each row starts with 3 chain stitches which replace the first double crochet. The first 3 chain stitches on each row (apart from on the first row) are therefore not counted as 1 chain-space.
----------------------------------------------------------

POTHOLDER:
The piece is worked from corner to corner, back and forth in STRIPES – see description above.

SQUARE:
Work A.1 as follows (A.1 shows only the first 5 rows, but all the rows are worked as row 4; you are working over more chain-spaces than shown in A.1 - see the star in the diagram; start to crochet here):
ROW 1: Work 6 chain stitches - read CROCHET INFO, with hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and mustard, work 1 double crochet in the 5th chain stitch from the hook, work 1 double crochet in the last chain stitch = 2 double crochets and 1 chain-space (which will be worked around on the next row), turn.
ROW 2: Work 3 chain stitches (replace the first double crochet), skip the first double crochet, 1 double crochet in the next double crochet and 3 chain stitches. Around the 3 chain stitches worked on row 1 work as follows: 1 slip stitch, 3 chain stitches and 2 double crochets, turn.
ROW 3: Work 3 chain stitches (replace the first double crochet), skip the first. double crochet, 1 double crochet in the next double crochet, 3 chain stitches. Around the 3 chain stitches worked at the end of row 2 work as follows: 1 slip stitch, 3 chain stitches and 2 double crochets, 1 slip stitch around the next chain-space, 3 chain stitches and finish with 1 double crochet in the next double crochet and 1 double crochet in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of row 2, turn.
ROW 4: Work 3 chain stitches (replace the first double crochet), skip the first double crochet, 1 double crochet in the next double crochet, 3 chain stitches. Around each chain-space from the previous row work: 1 slip stitch, 3 chain stitches and 2 double crochets. Finish row with 1 slip stitch around the first chain-space on the previous row, 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in the next double crochet and 1 double crochet in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the previous row, turn.
Repeat row 4 (i.e. both from the right and the wrong side). REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! There will be 1 more chain-space to work around on each new row. When the piece measures 20 cm / 8'' measured along the edge (= a total of approx. 20 rows), continue working according to A.2 (A.2 shows only the last 4 rows, but all rows are worked as row 1; you will be working over more chain-spaces than shown in A.2 on the first rows - see star in diagram; start to crochet here) as follows:
ROW 1: Work 3 chain stitches. Around each chain-space from the previous row work as follows: 1 slip stitch, 3 chain stitches, 2 double crochets, finish with 1 slip stitch around the first chain-space from the previous row.
Repeat row 1 (i.e. both from the right and the wrong side). You will have 1 less chain-space to work around on each new row. Cut and fasten the strand when you have worked the last row in A.2 (i.e. you have worked right out to the corner including the loop). The potholder measures approx. 20 x 20 cm / 8" x 8''. Fasten all strands neatly. Work 1 more potholder.
